too late to reply as you have already figured it out, but your cables can be dirty. Meaning the housings they are passing through. Enough friction to cause shifting problems. Also, cables can stretch a little and you should use barrel adjuster up by the handlebar to center the shift pully directly under the gear you want to be in.
